Welcome to THTH, Forte’s premier source of all things heavy, hard, fast and metal.
If you’re anything like me and you enjoy lame jokes that others think have been dragged out way past their used by date then you’ll also be a fan of the whole “yeah but what does Corey Taylor think about this?” response to pretty much any article posted to social media by a certain metal blog. The best part is when users post it in the comments on articles that are literally about Corey Taylor’s thoughts on something. And it all came about because the certain metal blog kept posting articles about what Corey Taylor thinks about certain subjects, so it’s not like this came out of nowhere.
This meme needs to spread across all metal publications so join me, won’t you, in posting “yeah but what does Corey Taylor think about this?” everywhere you can, but especially in the comments on articles about Slipknot and Corey Taylor. And for those of you thinking this is a dumb idea, this idea truly isn’t a dumb as running a metal web blog or publication and constantly posting shite about a shit vocalist from shite bands with the hope of driving clicks and traffic to webpages that feature advertising. Yeah but what does Corey Taylor think about this, I wonder?
